Coleman County considers a new jail
The Coleman County Jail is not what you think of when you hear the phrase, "home sweet home." "The jail has a Texas historical marker on it and it was occupied in 1890," said Sheriff Wade Turner. Not only has the jail housed criminals since 1890, it traditionally also houses the sheriff's family. And for almost 30 years Sheriff Turner's family thrived within the jail walls. But with the age of the jail comes issues — the jail can only house nine inmates and the rest of Coleman County's inmates have to be sent to other jails.
